3:05am
it is believed the ban will be at least 50 games. as for a-rod, sources tell major league baseball they want to ban the yankee through next season. this season he's going to be back in a week. and next year he's reportedly trying to avoid that lifetime ban. he wants to cash in on some of the $100 million he still has owed. he's getting about $25 million per year. >>ainsley: on the eve of his military trial, accused fort hood shooter major nidal hasan releasing documents to fox news renouncing u.s. citizenship. he explains his relationship with a radical cleric with whom he exchanged e-mails before that massacre. has san is charged in the november 2009 ram page that killed 13 soldiers at fort hood. >> the government has tried to deny this is an act of terrorism. i think it helped that if people hear the words from hasan's mouth, they'll
3:06am
understand this was an act of terrorism. >>ainsley: hasan faces the death penalty if convicted. >>brian: an al qaeda terrorist threat so serious u.s. embassies are being shut down around the world. we're live in washington with the latest details. >> good morning. like you said, a threat of terror attacks. because of that, a number of u.s. embassies and consolates will close sunday for precautionary measures. u.s. intel picked up signs of an al qaeda plot against diplomatic posts in the mideast and other muslim countries. while american diplomatic missions in europe are closed on sunday, it's a regular work day in many arab and middle eastern countries. locations such as egypt, iraq, afghanistan, and kuwait, closures we are learning have something to do with -- quote -- "terror concerns or other unspecified security concerns." president barack obama met with the yemen president yesterday at the white
3:07am
house. he says the country has been cracking down object al qaeda. >> because of some of the very effective military reforms the president initiated when he came into this office, what we've seen is al qaeda in the huat moved back out of territory it was controlling. >> we learned this information from the state department releasing it yesterday, but along with very few details. >> the department has been apprised of information that out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting our installation that indicates we should institute these precautionary steps. >> the spokesperson says they may stay closed for more than a day depending on the development of these potential threats. back to you. >>brian: thank you, elizabeth. let's talk benghazi. >>steve: let's talk a little benghazi. we have told you many times why is the administration
3:08am
not trying to get to the bottom of what happened in 2012 when two tkefpt -- department of state and navy seals were learned. now we've learned in addition to the navy department and department of state personnel there were dozens of members of the c.i.a. why were they there? we know the c.i.a. were trying to do everything they can to keep survivors from talking to the media or talking to congress as well. in fact, last night it was made clear they pulled out all the stops. looks like a coverup. >> including changing names, creating aliases. you stop and think what thing are most calculated to get at the truth, talk to people with firsthand knowledge? what creates the appearance or prance the reality of a
3:09am
coverup? not letting us talk to people who have the most amount of information, dispersing them throughout the country and changing their names. >>brian: number one, could they have helped? did they help? these two guys on top of the roof held off and may have taken out thousands of al qaeda killers, terrorists before ultimately losing their life to an r.p.g. i'm wondering, if it's true, i think back to was it rand paul's question to hillary clinton when she came out, when they said is it true there were arms moving to syrian rebels once used for libyan rebels? and she hraobd at him a -- looked at him aghast? where did that come from? i'll have to look into that. >>steve: her response was you'll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. the agency that ran the annex, the c.i.a. we know there were dozens of c.i.a. personnel in libya that night. >>ainsley: what did happen? we all want to know.
3:10am
obviously it was something that was such a big deal, obviously it was when individuals are killed, but something they're hiding that these individuals know. they do not want them to get out. they're moving them around the country, giving them lie detector tests occasionally. >>steve: the crazy thing about this week, we heard from the white house when asked whether benghazi was a phony scandal, they regard this as a phony scandal. during phony scandals, do you move people around. one other thing, they're giving them polygraphs once a month. >>ainsley: changing names, moving them around the country and polygraph tests occasionally. >>brian: you know the trayvon martin case everyone is talking about, is this a trend. is it more a tragedy all around with george zimmerman and trayvon martin. others say if you want to get to the problems in america, look to the inner cities where black on black crime is through the roof. especially chicago, that is where crime is through the roof. a local lawmakers there, a
3:11am
state lawmaker there thinks she has a theory on who is killing these kids. state rep monique davis. listen to her. >> i'm going to tell you what some suspicions have been and people have whispered to me, they're not sure that black people are shooting all of these children. there's some suspicion -- and i don't want to spread this but i want to tell you what i've been hearing. they suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids. >>ainsley: she's hearing these rumors on the street. >>steve: and repeating them on that detroit radio station. bill o'reilly booked her last night. it was fiery. watch. >> chicago police, as you well know, are not gunning down black children. you know that; right? >> well, certainly they are not, bill. but based upon the history of african-americans in this country and based upon the fact that 70% of the
3:12am
murders in chicago are unsolved, 70% are unsolved, people are wondering what the heck is going on. certainly monique davis, who is a good friend to the police, who supports the police, i believe they're our first responder and i respect that, but i have the right as a legislator to repeat what my community says to me. >> not if it's irresponsible you don't. i hear a lot of *eurp -- irresponsible stuff. >> i don't think it is irresponsible. >> for chicago police to be accused of gunning down children? you don't think it'sish responsible. >> i don't think they said that. i said there was some suspicion -- >> that's irresponsible without any evidence. >>steve: we all hear crazy stuff. when you're in a position of power and influence, you don't repeat it. >>ainsley: she does go on to say i didn't realize this would make national news. i said this on a local
3:13am
radio station and then it made national news. i don't think she realized the backlash. >>steve: o'reilly didn't give her a pass. >>brian: straight ahead, how easy to get an obamaphone? roll the tape. >> i think it's pretty much anywhere you can get food stamps, they have vendors on the street who are approaching you and saying do you have a free phone yet? >>brian: that woman got three phones and she's not even eligible. stuart varney is fired up. i called him this morning. >>steve: on your obamaphone? look what happened while you were sleeping. why this brawl erupted between lawmakers. they're breaking the laws on lawmakers. ♪ ♪ ♪ so then the little tiny chipmunks go all the way up... ♪ [ female announcer ] when your swapportunity comes,

>>steve: next time you get your cell phone bill, think to yourself how much cheaper would my life be if i got a free phone from the government? as one reporter found out, pretty easy. take a listen to this. >> i think pr-tty much -- pretty much anywhere that you can get food stamps, they have vendors on the street approaching you and saying do you have a free phone yet. i say no -- or when i did have one, i said yes, and they would ask you whether you were on welfare of any kind. i said no but i'd sure like

3:18am
every year. a lot of money and a lot of waste. she shouldn't get these phones and she is getting three free. >> there are six million obama phones. you pay for it through your own phone lines. this is a classic example of vote buying. just give everybody stuff and vote for me. that's my interpretation. you may not share it, but that's what it looks like for me. it's waste and fraud in a government program that you can never ever get rid of. >>steve: the problem, stuart, is there's very little oversight. these phone companies, the more they are able to give out, the more money they get. so it's like, okay, we're getting this money through this government program, the phone companies are saying, let's send our guys out on the street and give away as many as phones as possible. there are instances where people have wound up with 20, 30, 40 free phones. >>ainsley: what is the purpose of this? why do they need these cell phones? >> this young lady does not need them.
3:19am
the purpose is so that poor people can get on the phone and apply for jobs. that was the excuse. what it really is is spend government money. that's how the administration wants to soup up the economy. it has not worked. >>steve: once upon a time it was hard line phones. a couple of years ago people said let's expand it to cell phones. >> 2008, that's when the rules changed. given this obvious fraud and waste, do you think you'll ever get rid of it? >>ainsley: there is no way we can opt out as americans. >>steve: you have 20 pages of phone bill, there's small print in the back. >> check it out. overphone bill, you will see it, paying for those free phones that reporter received when she is not supposed to receive anything at all. >>ainsley: 41% of the people getting these phones are not eligible. >> six million of these phones are out there in use

3:25am
dr. marc siegel. back pain, a big deal to me. you've helped me out before in the past. let's get through myths and facts. first off, back pain usually goes away on its own. fact or myth? >> absolutely true. people don't realize that. by the way, as we were saying, what back pain is is because there's a tight compartment of muscle, nerve and bone in one area. nerves get inflamed and you get back pain. you get a muscle spasm and you think it's going to last forever but most of the time it goes away on its own. >>brian: the guidelines are always right? >> myth. guidelines for back pain say we overdo the treatment, that we overdo the m.r.i.'s, we overdo the steroids, narcotics and surgeries. that's true but guidelines in general i don't believe is good medicine. guidelines should be taking place of by the art of

medicine, one on one. depends on the person. >>brian: you can't be too gentle? >> some people need surgery, some don't. >>brian: m.r.i. scans, c.t. scans and specialists are underutilized. myth or fact? >> a myth. they are overutilized. 11% of people with back pain end up with an instant c.t. scan or m.r.i. most of the time physical therapy and heat work and you don't need imaging. only if the pain is radiating down your legs or arms. if there is a radiating fact or it doesn't go away or it's debilitating, you need imaging studies. >>brian: narcotics are a good choice for back pain? is that a myth or fact? >> totally a myth. what is disturbing about narcotics, brian, is there are up to about 30% of back medications now. a study out of harvard shows in the past decade
3:27am
we've increased prescriptions up to 30%. they are addictive, cause problems later on. they don't solve the inflammations in the back. >>brian: back surgery is frequently overdone? fact or myth? >> a fact. you know why? initially with back surgery you may have relief. it may work for a couple of years. studies show out of the n.i.h. that down the line 10% to 40% of back surgeries fail. there are reasons for it. sometimes if you've got a bad disk, this may be indications for back surgery but don't rush to it. >>brian: what makes the back so challenging? >> the back is challenging because we're using it all the time. it started off as aches. we weren't supposed to be standing up. we put tremendous pressure on the back when we sit, stand, then the muscles, nerves and bones are very tightly together. they get inflamed easily. you get the muscles in spasm, nerves inflamed and

3:48am
the mayor who came into a tough situation. folks who couldn't get to work were desperate. >>steve: some people actually stopped buses? >> there were people who stepped in front of buses with guns because they wanted to stkpwet -- get to work. >>steve: it shows you how structurally screwed up detroit has been for awhile. now they are doing what they can. what do you make of the suggestion that they take the retirees who are on the city plan now and shove them into the obamacare exchanges? >> they may call this the affordable care act but the reality is by making some taxpayer in wisconsin have to work harder to pay the health care benefits of a retiree in detroit that is both unaffordable and unfair. >>steve: it is unfair. for instance, people in other states, other cities, they've lived responsibly so why should they have to pay for somebody with the situation they've got in detroit, the motor city? >> we should not reward dysfunctional management. this is a wolf wrapped in
3:49am
sheep's clothing and it will gnaw the american taxpayer to the bone. >>steve: what would you do? if you could give detroit some help, what's your suggestion? >> we have got to get communities across this country to live within their own means. the city of detroit overspends by 34% every year. the federal government overspends by north of 40%. moving the cost from detroit to the federal taxpayer does not help anything. it just enhances how quickly america is going to be in trouble. >>steve: the federal government can print money. detroit can't. >> if we want to buy bread with a wheelbarrow, that's where we're headed. >>steve: mark ash, c.e.o. of transpro, thank you very much for joining us. >>brian: thank you, mark. we're going to talk a little bit more about that too, detroit with uncle cracker. straight ahead, which cup of coffee has the most caffeine? it? starbucks, dunkin' donuts

4:03am
others who may be visiting our installation, that indicates we should institute these precautionary steps. the department when conditions warrant, take steps to balance our continued operation with security and safety. >> ainsley: the senate foreign relations committee just passed a bill to increase embassy security in the wake of the benghazi terrorist attack. a first date ends in tragedy when an advertising executive plunges to her death when the railing on her balcony collapses. this happened here in new york city. here is her picture, 35-year-old jennifer. she went out for a smoke break, 17th floor with her date, and that's when the railing that she was leaning on gave way. >> i'm just shocked to hear that. very sad. very, very sad for the woman. >> ainsley: the woman's date is not accused of doing anything wrong here. we're expecting some big news on the economy this morning. the labor department releasing the monthly jobs report for july. economists are predicting slow growth with an increase of just

4:05am
it is the eve of his military trial. the accused fort hood shooter releasing these documents to fox and in it, he renounces his u.s. citizenship and abandons his military oath as a commissioned officer. you no longer have to refer to him as major nidal malik hasan. he explains his relationship in these documents with the radical cleric, anwar al al-awlaki. you may recall he had exchanged numerous e-mails with him before that massacre. hasan is charged in the november 2009 rampage that killed 13 at fort hood. staff sergeant sean manning was shot six times at the fort hood readiness center. listen to this. >> the government has treated -- has denied treating this as an act of terrorism. i hope if people hear the words from his own mouth that they'll understand this was an act of terrorism. >> these documents may change or force the government to change its classification of this.

hasan's attorney verified the authenticity of these documents and add the 42-year-old former army major directed him to provide these to fox news. an expert in the koran reviewed the documents and here is his take. >> i think it's clearly an after the fact issue where he now is trying to put the sort of personal jihad that he involved in, trying to put it into a larger religious and geopolitical context and justify what he's doing. >> he now faces the death penalty if convicted. once again, fox exclusive, this information right here and also on our web site straight from his mouth. back to you. >> steve: thank you very much. we're going to talk to peter johnson, jr. about that in a little while. you know the president of the united states regards the irs targeting of his political
4:07am
rivals as a phony the irs. the acting head of the irs was in front of congress yesterday. the house ways and means committee, talking about obamacare. keep in mind the irs is going to be in charge of enforcing obamacare and making sure people sign up for it. well, there is danny werfel right there. extraordinarily, in his testimony he revealed the last thing the administration wanted to hear him say. he said he would like to keep his current insurance as would many members of the irs. they don't want to get forced into the obamacare exchanges. >> i prefer to stay with the current policy that i'm pleased with rather than go through a change if i don't need to go through that change. all else being equal, i think if you're an individual who is satisfied with your health care coverage, you're probably in a better position to stick with that coverage than go through the change of moving into a
4:08am
different environment and going through that process. >> steve: how ironic is that? the agency that is charged with enforcing obamacare doesn't want obamacare. >> ainsley: you think is a way to just deflect his own scandals that are happening to the irs? >> steve: that's a good idea. start a new one. >> brian: right. now everyone will say, why is it that he's heading this up? why can't he be part of the magic, which is raising rates in ohio 41%? part of the brilliance that has georgians paying 198% more and indiana, they estimate that every individual will pay 72% more under obamacare. but the guy in charge of enforcing it, for those who refuse to get it, well, he's not getting it. incredibly embarrassing. >> ainsley: the account you put in if you want to put money in for medical reasons, there is now a $2,500 cap on that. >> brian: are you kidding? >> ainsley: you can only put in $2,500. then after that, done.
4:09am
so parents with disabled children, they're really concerned about this. >> brian: they should be. >> steve: the president promised if you want to keep your insurance, you can. danny werfel and the irs finding out the hard way, you can't. meanwhile, a lot of people have gotten cell phones, free cell phones from the government over the last number of years. some refer to them as obama phones. there is a columnist for the national review on-line, jillian melcher. she does not qualify for one because you've got to be needy, right? well, because there is so little oversight, she was able to get not one, not two, but three obama phones. she was on last night explaining how. >> were you able to get a free phone? >> i was not only to get one, i was able to get three. i'm not eligible for any of them. >> how were you able to get them so easily? >> i think pretty much anywhere you can get food stamps, they have vendors out on the street who are approaching you and saying, do you have a free phone
4:10am
yet? so i say no, or when i did have one, i said yes. and they would ask you whether you were on welfare of any kind. i said no, but i'd sure like to be. and that got me signed up. they pulled out their electronic tablet, take down my home address and send it off to me just like that. i was able to get three of the eight applications i put in. >> were you deceitful in any way in terms of answering the questions? >> i wasn't. i told the whole truth. when i got one phone in the mail, fcc rules are you can only have one phone per household. i got one phone and told them about it. i had vendors telling me, don't worry. it's okay. you can have one phone from every single vendor participating in the program. >> steve: there is very little oversight and so that's how she was able to pull it off. even though she answered everything truthfully. >> ainsley: if you're wondering where you pay for this, it's on your bill, the bottom of your bill, 2.50 every month. >> steve: the universal charge. >> ainsley: yes. if you have a cell phone, or any phone, even a land line. >> steve: every phone.
4:11am
>> brian: so here is the big question of the day. when it's time to get the cup of coffee and you notice some people don't give that you jolt and some do, how much caffeine is inside them? let's reveal now. for example, the three that we have in fronts of you, mcdonald's is in the middle, playing the role is starbucks is tar bucks. and wide right is dunkin' donuts. out of those three, what has the most caffeine? first off, it is not dunkin' donuts with the most caffeine. >> steve: of the three we feature there, it is starbucks. >> brian: right. >> steve: actually they've got the most at about 20 1/2 miligrams per fluid ounce. look at that. the mccafe, the mcdonald's coffee has the least, 9.1 miligrams and dunkin' donuts in the middle. >> ainsley: can you taste caffeine? >> brian: the body can. >> ainsley: i think this one is the strongest. when you drink starbucks, you can taste it.
4:12am
my favorite, 'cause it's sweet, is dunkin' donuts. >> steve: i like both of those. >> brian: i have one coffee a day. i usually go dunkin' donuts because i can't replace the lining of my stomach. that's what dunkin' donuts -- starbucks does to mine. >> steve: but if you want a real big jolt of caffeine, you should get death wish coffee. take a look that. 16 ounces has 660 miligrams. they say -- i was on the mayo clinic web site this morning. they say heavy users, between 5 and 600 miligrams a day, you wind up with in some cases insomnia, restlessness. but you could host a morning show. >> ainsley: right. >> brian: they don't care if you're restless. they just wants the interviews to go well. by the way, that's more than monster and red bull? that is unbelievable. >> steve: probably. they say moderate dose is between two and 300 milligrams.
4:13am

4:17am
pork spending has happened and they've included this in the bill and basically until they get it out, these group, lobbyist groups in dc will continue to get millions of dollars going to farmers that have been dead for years. >> brian: wow. so you're able to find this out. but it doesn't seem in congress they're that curious. for example, dollars to the dead, department of agriculture. $33 million, as i mentioned in the open. between 08 and 2012. social security administration, 331 million. office much personnel management, 86.1 million through last year and the sim program in 2010 that passed has 18 million going to the dead. what are you doing about this besides alerting those in your tea party network? >> it's real simple. when you sit there and i guess the obama administration realized that they had given enough bribes to those above ground, so they're going to continue to bribe those people underground with basic entitle ams hoping they'll continue to vote for them, which would
4:18am
explain why i had the choice at the voter box in november to either vote by ballot or by ouija board. going forward, it's one of those things we need to make sure that we're holding these politicians both on the republicans and democrat side's feet to the fire and a lot of these lobbyists are very powerful in dc and making sure those guys, the only people that are not getting funds are ones that might have passed years before. >> brian: i know tea party candidates obviously are going to hear your cry. have you found democrats on the other side equally as alarmed at this waste? >> of course not, because it actually benefits the democrats the most. 1.8 million people, dead people, are actually still on our voter rosters, which would probably explain why back in november, just days after the election in california, minnesota, north carolina, we were receiving stories of people who actually record their vote, yet had died years before. and so this actually usually benefits those on the democrat
4:19am
side, oddly enough. we need to make sure those folks that are collecting these checks knowingly that they're doing false bidding, that they are prosecuted because they're committing fraud just like any other type of fraud we have here in the united states. >> brian: and almost like what's happening in sports right now. there has to be a fear of a penalty rather than someone saying i'll give it a. so worse comes to worse, they'll stop the checks. scotty -- >> in reality, i'm going to put that the government is just as likely to get rid of this issue and this pork spending as they are for the cubs to win the next world series. >> brian: right. i get it. thanks for the analogy. thank you very much. have a nice weekend. >> thank you. >> brian: straight ahead, this rolling stone cover sparked a lot of outrage with you, the accused boston bomber getting a rock star treatment. this morning a new detail about this story and you are not going to like it. it's got serious star power. denzel washington, mark walberg. but two guns, a blockbuster or a

4:26am
watching her on camera. it's a tough movie, but also along the lines of woody allen movies like "midnight in paris." it's a great film. he's one of the most diverse film makers working today. >> brian: is he in it? >> he's not in the movie or woody allen character. alec baldwin is great. i gave it a four out of five, recommend it as an oscar nominee for cate blanchett. >> steve: something for the kids, the smurfs are out. >> yeah. smurfs 2, here is the -- by the way, the first smurf film made over $500 million world wide. the problem is, they don't have a good balance for adults and kids to like it. this is only for the kids. pixar has that balance. but there is really no jokes for the adults. hank azaria is great. the 3d is great for the kids. but i recommend skipping this. i gave it two out of five. i thought it was painful, more painful than getting hit in the

5:08am
identities. it sounds like there is something to hide. >> let me take it in order. first of all, i think it's a good idea to close the embassies in the radical countries in the muslim world. why? because if we did not and something awful happened, we'd say we didn't even learn the lesson of benghazi last anniversary of 9-11. and the end of ramadan. so it is a good protective step. it's something we should have done last year. could have averted a lot of the tragedy. i think the death of the ambassador and the three heros in benghazi that day. in terms of the c.i.a. being on the ground in benghazi, we have been reporting that for months now. you'll recall right on the curvy couch, i suggested that the story was the c.i.a. was there to collect the shoulder fired surface to air missiles and other advanced weapons to transport them to turkey and from turkey to the rebels in syria. >> steve: fast and furious. >> the government c everything o

suppress the news or the knowledge of exactly what that operation was. >> brian: hillary clinton was asked about that directly and she acted like, i think it was rand paul, had nine heads. what are you talking about? >> remember at the time, brian, clearly we are sure they are extremely sensitive about the notion of what the c.i.a., what that secret op was. but it also presents the scenario that you had a couple of dozen armed fighters. we were not as, you know, as caught without any power in benghazi at that time. it was the c.i.a. operators who went from the annex to the consulate to rescue the rescue mission. of course, by that time it was too late for ambassador stevens and his colleague, but we had a substantial force on the ground in the c.i.a. operators. now, whether the c.i.a. was talking to the defense department, that's problematic and we would like to know that. but i don't know how long it's going to be before that
5:10am
information is released. >> ainsley: how normal is this for them to do these polygraph with the c.i.a. operatives that were there on the ground and then move them around and change their names? >> i don't know. we don't know -- >> steve: it's just suspicious. >> well, they have not allowed any of the wounded, for instance, or any of the participants to speak to the media or even to the -- >> steve: why not? >> brian: does that bother you? >> because the nature of the c.i.a. this is the most secret, ultrasecret agency -- i'm not defending it, brian. >> ainsley: someone is talking -- >> it's not as extraordinary as perhaps being made out. look at all the c.i.a. operations we had in central america, in south america, in southeast asia over the years. they are in the secret business. >> brian: would you conclude -- what you concluded it wasn't four guys holding off massive. it was -- >> they were also shooting -- i think they got overrun -- they

the so-called apology was a little frame from the simpsons that was an absolute slap at fox news. >> this was a low down and dirty, despicable comparison. one thing you learn in the news business, you don't use analogies to the kkk or to the nazis, for example, when you're saying somebody was so aggressive in terms of exercising government power, he was a nazi. you don't do that. 6 million people died from the nazis. you don't use the kkk. lynchings and other horrible torture of black people. >> brian: what about the apology. >> steve: what about the apology? >> this person should be ashamed of himself and whoever owns the new haven register, really, this was below the belt. this was disgusting. you should be ashamed of yourselves and the people of connecticut should reject you. i mean, are we now going to start using these blasphemies
5:13am
whenever we don't agree with someone's political philosophy or their professed ideology or the suspected ideology? this is beyond the pail. this is unacceptable. they really have done something that i think is unforgivable. >> brian: i imagine that's going to fit into the geraldo at large format this week when we watch you. am i correct? >> actually it's my daughter's eighth birthday and we're celebrating that. >> ainsley: where has the time gone. >> brian: mail geraldo gifts. >> she is such a doll. she cut off her long hair and donated it to locks of love. >> ainsley: just like her dad, big heart. >> steve: erica we know you're watching, happy anniversary. straight ahead on this friday telecast, think your boss hates you? here is a clue she does. >> okay. here is what i need. three coffees, two regular, one decaf. all with splenda and three breakfast sandwiches. >> steve: the signs that you could be about to lose your job. cheryl casone with that.
5:14am
>> ainsley: she's a tough boss. >> brian: then the accused fort hood shooter denounces his citizenship. why are we calling this a workplace shooting? peter johnson, jr. is here. i can't always keep my kids' socks clean. but at least i can help keep their underwear clean. that's why there's charmin ultra strong. i'll take that. go get 'em, buddy! it cleans so well and you can use up to four times less than the leading bargain brand. [ female announcer ] charmin ultra strong has a duraclean texture that's soft and more durable
5:15am
to help your kids get clean while still using less. and its four times stronger than the leading bargain brand. wow, you cleaned up a lot! you did too, pal! [ laughs ] we all go. why not enjoy the go with charmin ultra strong?
5:16am
>> steve: the accused fort hood shooter released several pages of documents exclusively to fox news channel. in these notes, he denounces his u.s. citizenship and also ties
5:17am
himself to terrorist on war al-awlaki. throughout the document and on his own business cards, hasan uses the acronym with soa, son of allah. why does the white house classify this as workplace violence? let's talk to peter johnson, jr. who is really agitated. >> well, i think all americans are agitated about it. 13 people killed, 30 injured, mowed down in one of the worst terrorist attacks on american soil that we've seen. obviously doesn't meet september 11 standards. but people mowed down in the middle of a military installation and so the federal government responds that, we need to really be fair to his rights in terms of a trial, which is coming up next week. so if we give you the purple heart, you courageous american soldiers, if we give you benefits that are in line with people who have been wounded in
5:18am
a war, in a terror act that somehow we're going to abridge his rights, well, now maybe he's given up his rights today. maybe he said and he has said, i don't want to be an american citizen. i'm renouncing -- >> steve: can you do that? >> you can't do it legally. you've got to go before an official. if you're outside the united states, and there are ways of doing it inside the united states. you can't do it. but this is what i say, let's accept it. let's accept his renunciation of citizenship today. the white house should say, yes. they like to do things by executive order all the time anyway and ignore congress and the supreme court and say we're going to act on the will of the people. the will of the people this morning is that we don't want him as an american citizen and we happily accept his rejection of our principles in this country. name him a terrorist. give him a trial. give these people the purple heart. give them the benefits they need. you've interviewed the sergeant. brian has, i have on this show.
5:19am
other people involved with that act of terror on that day, they're not getting benefits. do you know how much he's collected in income while he sits in that jail allegedly preparing for the trial? $300,000. meanwhile, american soldiers deprived of the purple heart, deprived of the honor that they earned on that day, deprived of the benefits that they should be getting as wound soldiers. so your citizenship is over. we're taking it back. give you a trial. what happens is what happens. but for leon panetta to say this should be examined in the context of workplace violence, that's ridiculous. that's unamerican. >> steve: absolutely. peter johnson, jr., have a great weekend. >> good to see you. >> steve: thank you. meanwhile straight ahead, think your boss hates you? this could be a clue.
5:20am
>> where y'all going? >> we have a meeting. didn't you get the e-mail? >> no, i didn't. >> that's weird. >> steve: there are some other signs you're about to lose your job. cheryl casone apparently has heard them before. she's going to lay them out. and then this is what happened while you were sleeping. we're going to tell you what caused this massive fight between lawmakers. but first out to our plaza. our performer today, uncle kracker performing "when the sun goes down." ♪ all day long i've been taking it easy ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

>> steve: quick headlines for you now. could booze mean big bucks for the postman? the post master general says the cash-strapped agency could make $50 million a year if they started delivering beer and wine and other types of alcohol. the postal service lost $16 billion last year. and that could help take up the slack. a nuclear war literally in taiwan. the kicking and screaming in parliament, cage match in parliament before a vote to finish a nuclear power plant. it's a heated issue.
5:25am
supporters say there will be widespread power shortages without the new plant. critics say it's a safety risk after japan's fukushima disaster. brian, over to you. >> brian: do you ever get the feeling your boss hates your guts? >> ainsley: maybe he or she just isn't that in to you, brian, and it's making work life miserable for all of the people who have to work with you. cheryl casone is here to tell us what we can do. >> so if have you ever seen that movie "he's just not that into you," sometimes your boss is not. >> brian: give me an example. >> brian, has this ever happened to you? >> all right. what do we have? >> what if we start working on a logo. >> i agree. >> perfect idea. i think we are done here. [ laughter ] >> brian: ignored during a meeting. that's bad. >> they ignore you, they don't want to hear your ideas. what she could do at the end of this meeting, as everyone was
5:26am
standing up, she could have said, hey, hey, i got one more idea. you got tore assertive. >> brian: what about this next one? >> have you ever been assigned, brian, a menial task? >> brian: yes. why? >> okay. i need three coffee, two regular, one decaf. all with splenda and three breakfast sandwiches now. >> i did not get a masters degree for this. >> yes, danielle is having a bad work experience. they give you menial tasks to do. but here is what she could do, to do it. she's got to make it happen and have a follow up meeting with her boss to say, i got all your coffee and sandwiches, but guess what, here is a story pitch that i have for you. and here is your coffee and the story pitch. you've got to add in extra things and surprise them. it's kinds of like the movie "devil wears prada." add in extra stuff. >> ainsley: or say yes, i need your credit card or keep it and
5:27am
use it later. >> brian: that's not good advice. stick to the script, please, ainsley. >> ainsley: what if you are excluded at work? >> here is an example of being excluded at you're job. >> where are you going is? >> we have a meeting for the kill immediate project, did you get the e-mail? >> no. >> she wasn't included, but she could pick thencely project. that's what -- the ainsley project. that would be much better anyway. >> brian: amaying. that would be more fun. >> what she could do is pitch the ainsley project and then make sure she follows up. but be aware in the office. i know she's upset. as you can tell, she's not having a good day. don't gossip. keep it to yourself. call your therapist or friends, but don't complain to co-workers. >> brian: or ainsley's therapist. much more understanding. >> i'm in her office too much.
5:28am
i'm wondering if you've ever been micromanaged at your job. >> did you get the assignment done? >> yes. >> did you send the e-mail i needed to you send? >> yes. >> did you do my photocopies? >> uh-huh. >> you are one tough boss. >> we're not messing around here at fox business. they micromanage you. >> brian: they don't trust you. >> basically no. what she needs to do at this point is, again, it goes back to if she's given three task, four tasks, come up with -- she's got to stand up for herself and get more assertive with her boss. also, you may be set up sometime with the boss later in that week to say look, i've got a lot of ideas. i feel like i'm being kind of -- the clamp is coming down on me in the office. so let's have some discussions. you got to talk it out. it's like therapy, my god. >> ainsley: one of those ideas could be guess what, boss, i'm going to be taking a job somewhere else. maybe that's the time to say, got to go. >> 60% of american workers say the number one thing they hate about their jobs is their boss.
5:29am
bosses should be watching this segment. one more thing. has this ever happened to you at your job? >> hey, are we still on for that meeting? >> yes. we are. >> hey, i can't make that meeting today. sorry. >> ready to go to lunch? >> yeah. >> all right! >> why do i get nervous every time you come out of that door? >> brian: if you can't get ahold of your boss, she doesn't want to spend time with you, that's also a signal. >> absolutely. your boss doesn't want to talk to you. kind of like when i see you -- >> brian: that is not true. >> really, what she's got to do, obviously she was less interested in the meeting, i was less interested in the meeting than going to lunch with mr. cutie 21-year-old intern. >> brian: totally inappropriate, by the way. >> but again, she needs to ask me to lunch. obviously that's more interesting to me than having a meeting in my office. it's horrible to have a horrible boss. it really is. but you've got to be assertive
5:30am
because sometimes you don't have the option of quitting. you don't have the option of finding another job retama. >> brian: and moving in with your parents. you're a terrible person. >> thank you. >> ainsley: just how easy to get an obama phone? roll the tape. >> i think i pretty much anywhere that you can get food stamps, they have vendors on the street who are approaching you and saying, do you have a free phone yet? >> ainsley: she got not one, not two, but three free phones and she's not even eligible. more from her coming up next. >> brian: then anna kooiman is live in north carolina on the beach where she's about to release a sea turtle back into the wild. i think that sea turtle is happy. >> steve: uncle kracker is performing "smile." how do i know? >> brian: i can hear. ♪

putin next month. >> brian: what's next? the olympics? new york post reports major league baseball will suspend nine players who aren't named alex rodriguez. there are other players involved. the players expected to include johnny piralta, johnny cruz, everett cabrea. plus it's believed the bans will be 50 games. as for a-rod, it's tough to find out what the truth is, but major league baseball wants him banned through at least next season. he'll be 40 years old when he comes back then. he's reportedly trying to reach a deal to avoid a lifetime ban and to be able to play next season. espn reports talks stalled because he wants to make $100 million that's left on his deal. federal prosecutors getting involved, which could mean a-rod would be subpoenaed and have to testify under oath, which means it could be really embarrassing. girl talk now. >> ainsley: i want to talk about that, too. i'm interested in that. why the ban for life versus a suspension? we'll talk about that later. jennifer aniston not friends

[ laughter ] but i mean -- >> is she a legitimate journalist? is she getting tabloidy? wasn't she on the today show? >> she got a demotion to her own show. >> ainsley: whoa. aniston also shot down rumors that she's a nudist with beyonce. >> brian: i never heard that. >> ainsley: there you go. >> brian: why didn't you tell me that? >> steve: it's in the news now. and she's not on welfare, but a reporter was able to receive three of the so-called obama phones provided by the government. it is the latest example of rampant fraud and abuse in the program it's supposed to be reserved for people in need. but vendors with camped out at food stamp offices trying to
5:37am
sign up as many people as possible. >> they would ask you whether you were on welfare of any kind. i said no, but i'd sure like to be. and that got me signed up. they pull out their electronic tablet and take down my home address and send it off to me just like that. i was able to get three of the eight applications i put in. this is my safelink phone. still active. these two here are my assurance phones. >> steve: at best you're only supposed to get one. in order to get a phone, those eligible must receive some form of government assistance and only allowed to receive one. we asked you what you thought. bill says, wonder what would happen if millions of us deducted the extra charge for the obama phone fraud? ought to be optional for us, not dictated by the corrupt government. jk asks, is the obama phone another phony scandal? that's funny. >> ainsley: cute. >> steve: and john wants to know, i wonder if because the government is providing a free phone and service, if that automatically grants them the

right to fully monitor those lines at will without a warrant of any kind? >> brian: that was definitely not a tweet. it was a little long. maria, what are you doing out there? are you doing the weather amidst the huge crowds? >> that's right. i'm doing the weather amidst this huge crowd that has shown up to see uncle kracker today in concert and also for some free barbecue, right? have you picked a barbecue yet? >> yes, very good. >> what's your name? >> vicky. >> where are you from? >> is a have a i can't, georgia -- savannah, georgia. >> what do you think of the weather? >> great. a little cool. not hot like savannah. perfect time to be here. >> that's exactly what i think as well here. temperatures a little on the cool side, especially for august. we'll warm up nicely. mid 80s for new york city. in cleveland, temperatures a little below average with a high of 78 degrees. where they're not below average is in texas. triple digits expected there. we're also expecting severe

5:47am
185,000. and to make it worse, just to add on to this, the prior months, may and june, which maybe seemed better, those were revised lower. so ultimately i know that we've been going in the right direction by adding jobs, but we don't have the gdp to go along with it. so it's slowly but surely -- the only good part is maybe this bed won't -- >> brian: can we ask you a question about a stock? >> yeah, go for it. >> brian: apple. why is it stumbling again? what's the problem? >> apple faces intense competition from samsung, from google. it certainly was one of those high flying stocks. i have to tell you, when you look at the analysts, 77% of the analysts still have a buy rating. yesterday closed around 456. most of the analysts think it will break through $500. they do have new products in the pipeline. you talk to the suppliers over in asia, that's how you get what they may be making next.
